11:23 pm
11:24 pm
steve overmyer joins us with sports and we're going to talk about the mets, right? >> 39 games left to go in the season. we're coming down to it right now. every game is important. the mets have been fading from play-off contention since the trading deadline. that's when they dealt for jay bruce who was hoping to reproduce what yoenis cespedes did last year. but he is only hitting .176 as a met. he had the day off clear off his head. wins in the final two games in to get back to .500. the return of cespedes gave them the punch they are lacking at the plate an rbi double in the first and third a solo shot. the mets 3-0 over san francisco. and they say that hitting is contagious. well, new york rallied for four more runs in the sixth. alejandro has cooled off in the last month but that gets him started. 7-2 mets. but the heartbeat for the mets is yoenis cespedes.
11:25 pm
average home runs and rbi despite missing 2 1/2 weeks. his second of the game brings him to 24 for the season. the mets beat the giants 9-5. they are five games back in the wild card. yankees and angels and rookie gary sanchez continues to rake. he is hitting .393 since his call-up. in 12 games, he has already hit 6 homers! that's why joe girardi is already very comfortable putting him at clean-up. that also means that the catcher is sanchez take his job. tonight, mccann in the dh roll gets a hit. 5-6 yankees in the 6th inning. the second straight weeks the giants looked sloppy and unprepared to play nfl caliber football. in fact, coach mcadoo told reporters at the half he couldn't find any positives. the only positive from today's game in buffalo is there were
11:26 pm
the field. manning, o'dell beckham, failed to menace in the preseason debuts. the first time ran 16 plays. they only had 32 yards to show for it. by comparison the defense looked better but not by much. rex ryan's squad jumped out to a 21-0 lead at the break. there was no silver lining today. nothing to hang your hat on. we had interceptions, fumbles, even a missed chip shot right here. giants buffalo, 21-0. last night's jets game proved there are no meaningless preseason games. a week ago, coach todd bowles said there's no competition for the backup quarterback job. well, after what he saw last night, he said every job is open. that's because bryce petty had his coming out party last night. petty was out there for 8 series against the redskins and he let the jets on three scoring drives including a pair of touchdowns. but most importantly, this is big, no interceptions.
11:27 pm
a quarterback decision in the next couple of weeks and petty just made a statement. >> do you believe that you have made this a real battle for the backup spot? >> you know, all i want to do is play. you know, whatever that is, coach said it best last night is, you know, you're playing for every position. whether here or somewhere else i want to make sure that people know that i love in hang on to first place. tough against the galaxy whose 15-goal differential is the most in the league. they started off fast thanks to david via and his 16th goal of the season. the only goal of the match. new york picks up three points with the victory. one-nil the final there. >> the jets player really had -- his morale is up. >> anytime you have a game
11:28 pm
when it's regular season or preseason. you should celebrate. >> we'll be right back. you ? ? ? award winning interface.
